Welcome to Deng Energy and Nanotechnology Group!

Deng Energy and Nanotechnology Group (DENG) is led by Dr. Sili Deng in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Our research combines experiments and computations, bridges fundamentals and applications, and focuses on energy conversion and nanomaterial synthesis. Specifically, the group is interested in multi-phase reacting flows, flame synthesis of nanomaterials, nanocatalysis, combustion kinetics and dynamics, emission reduction, and thermal management in engines and power systems.


[Openings] DENG has openings for 1-2 Ph.D. students and postdoctoral scholars. Please check our website for research directions and contact Dr. Deng, if you are interested in joining the group.
